ALDI announces opening for DeKalb store — and you can get free stuff



ALDI, the grocery store chain, is opening its newest metro Atlanta location near Decatur on Feb. 1.

Located at 1669 Scott Boulevard, it is part of a $3.4 billion investment plan to expand to 2,500 stores nationwide by the end of 2022. ALDI has more than 1,600 stores in 35 states, the company said.

To celebrate the opening there’s a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 8:25 a.m. The first 100 customers will receive a golden ticket, each containing ALDI gift cards of various amounts, the company said.

Customers can also tour the store, sample products and enter an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win a year’s supply of produce.

ALDI is touting the location as “green.” It’s the first ALDI in Georgia to have rooftop solar panels and an environmentally sustainable refrigeration system, ALDI said.
